With Desperados III due for release on why not relive the classic tactical combat that followed the success of the defining game of the genre, Commandos.

Currently £12.98 on GOG, and £2.86 on Humble Bundle so cheapest I can find, and a great price for two fantastic games.

Includes;

'Wanted, Dead or Alive'
"Desperados: Wanted Dead or Alive" is the first strategy game ever to combine a movie-based and story-driven atmosphere of an adventure game with the intellectual challenge of a real time tactic game.

In this western-style title, discover a game of strategy and tactics played out in exceptional real time. You're in charge of a team of 6 mercenaries and must find a way to complete your missions, be it infiltrating an enemy fortress, saving a team member or escaping an ambush... Combine the different skills of your 6 heroes to lead them to victory.

The StoryEl Paso, a typical Wild West town in the southwestern United States near the Mexican border. It is the year 1881. For the last few months, the trains belonging to the famous railroad company, Twinnings & Co have been the target of a whole series of hold-ups and ambushes. The management of the company has decided enough is enough and they have to put an end to the raids. It has offered a reward of $15,000 for anyone who captures the leader of the gang responsible.

But no one in and around El Paso has the courage to take on the might of the bandidos, so the outlaws just keep on robbing train after train. Even the local Marshal is keeping well out of it.

It’s only when a stranger rides into town that things start to change. Bounty hunter John Cooper pays a visit to the local Twinnings & Co manager offering to end the railroad company’s problems once and for all. He gathers together a gang of his old partners and declares war on the bandidos. But during his pursuit, which will take him through half of the southwestern United States, Cooper soon discovers that on this mission nothing is quite what it seems...

'Coopers revenge'
Desperados 2 is the sequel to the successful wild west title Desperados - Wanted Dead or Alive. The gameplay is based on its predecessor but with brand new tactical possibilities in a beautiful 3D environment. Switch from an isometric view to a third person view whenever you want; for example, for duels, brawls and shoot-outs. The great variety of settings includes dusty canyons, ghost towns, American Indian villages and forts, creating a breathtaking atmosphere. Take on the role of up to six heroes, including the famous bounty hunter John Cooper, and experience a thrilling story with surprising turns.

I've played the first Desperados and can highly rate it. Have completed it multiple times over the last 8 years. I do love the game play style. I first played the game that came as a demo on a disc with a cereal box as a kid. Now at 28

Loved this back in the day
Awesome games loved these back in day!
It's not on offer but I came across another the other day, although I don't think as well known as Desperados his or Commandos, so might scratch an itch someone may still have for a different setting.
